The Down side to travelling abroad...

As much fun as I had going to Sweden I had a few experiences I could have done without.....

1. RYANAIR: Ok we all know here in Europe the joys of flying with Ryanair..... NOT!!!!! On the way there, after doing the usual "cattle call" seating, I sat down and realized I had sat right in front of a screaming child who's parents thought this was "Oh so cute and funny!" I reiterate...... NOT!

2. Although my friend was great at taking this goofy american all over Stockholm, I am very apt to getting car sick..and well .....he almost got a lap full of..... Don't worry, I will not go there! But, he drives amazingly well but his speed leaves alot to the imagination. He was like Mario Andretti ( an older F1 racer that alot of F1 fans have long forgotten, so let me just say my friend compares to Micheal Shoemaker then)! See, I do know a little F1 trivia! .....

And Finally, #3: We have come back again to RYANAIR! On my way back to Germany I almost had the unduly honor of going to MILAN! Yep, a trip to Milan would have been wonderful....HAD I PLANNED IT! But, the ticket lady checked my ticket which clearly stated FRANKFURT/HAHN on it, but sent me to the MILAN plane anyhow. Luckily for me, I was aware of the indifference and went back to ask and sure enough, she says.... "OH I AM SORRY......YOUR FLIGHT BOARDS IN HOUR!" As if that was not enough when I did Try to board the right plane, my ticket had already been torn and they tried telling me I needed to get a new one issued. WHY?...do you ask? She claims that for security reasons my ticket was no longer valid. As I explained that my invalid ticket was the responsibility of one said Ticket checker, they had me wait until the very last to board while they tracked down the other ticket checker.....

OMFG.....it is a piece of paper with a serated line that YOU all "unserated" your damned selves...which I did say to them, where they let me on and then gave me a front row seat!!!!!

So, all in all.....the whole trip was fabulous with the exception of..... RYANAIR!!!!!

OK....you reached my fave subject..........RYANAIR......so....their line is.....you paid how much for a ticket??? what do you expect..........as long as there is a hole in my ass....I will not fly that bunch of jokers........they have to be the WORST bunch of monkeys I have EVER had the misfortune to grace a very acceptable plane with.
In fairness the staf are over pushed....the motto should be over promise under deliver.....but their biggest crime is their ruthlessnes at any cost.....watch this space....sooon there will be no seats on Ryanair aircraft....at least not if they can help it!
